Frank Robinson, a former Baltimore Oriole and Hall of Famer, has died at the age of 83.
He was the first player to win MVP awards in both leagues and the first African-American manager in MLB. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame as a Baltimore Oriole in 1982.
Sports Illustrated confirmed Robinson’s passing Thursday afternoon.
Robinson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President George W. Bush for his lifelong contribution to baseball and America.
